Converting three terraced houses on Wigan Road into seven bedsits has begun before planning permission has even been granted.
Westhoughton councillor David Wilkinson has demanded that Bolton Council’s planning enforcement team take action.
The bedsits are being developed inside three terraced properties but do not yet have planning consent.
David said: “I am very concerned that this work is going ahead without any proper consent.
“I think it gives a bad impression that it is already a done deal.”
